MEET YOUR MENTOR at the BIZWOMEN MENTORING MONDAY event. Join Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal on March 30th for this one-of-a-kind event that brings together women in a casual, fast-paced coaching atmosphere.
The event will take place in 43 Business Journal markets on the same day. This means at least 200+ women will be coached in every market or 10K women across America, from Albany to Hawaii.
The event will offer the opportunity to choose from 40 mentors who are the most influential women in the business community for one-on-one coaching sessions for seven minute conversations. The attendees will stand in line and wait for a particular mentor or move to the next mentor available. This will allow the attendees to network with each other while they are waiting, which is just as important as the coaching sessions. We expect every attendee to have the opportunity to meet between one and seven mentors. The quick turnaround is organized chaos which will be fast, fun and fulfilling as everyone gets the chance to meet new people and gain new insights.
2014 Mentor and Mentee Feedback:
Mentor: “Thank YOU for giving us this opportunity. It was an energizing event, well planned and executed and I was honored to be a part of it. Much good will come of this hour and a half spent together. “ Anne Saldanha M.D., Partner, Eastern Great Lakes Pathology PC
Mentor: “As a mentor, I can definitely say I received so much more than I gave. I had the opportunity to reconnect with individuals I have not seen for years, meet new connections and learn about wonderful resources for the clients my agency works with each day.” Margo Spence, Executive Director, First Step Home, Inc.
Mentee: “Fantastic event today! I left inspired and having connected with a myriad of diverse women. Thank you for what was a unique and worthwhile event. I aspire to be on the OTHER SIDE of the table down the road…and was grateful to be a part of such a dynamic group of women.” Leigh Elizabeth Deusinger, Director, Office of Career and Professional Development, Maryville University of Saint Louis
Mentee: “From the moment I got there I could feel the high energy level. The room was buzzing with all the conversations that were going on before the event started. I was able to connect with some women business owners which is always a pleasure! You could tell each of the mentors really wanted to be a part of this event, offering valuable suggestions to everyone they came in contact with and isn’t that what it’s all about? One of the take aways for me was that women are looking for mentors and coaches. We all have ideas that need to be shared with others who might be able to guide us in different directions.” Toni Nelson, Owner, Toni Nelson Means Business
